One of the up and coming movies this October is The Hate U Give, based on the young adult novel with the same name, written by Angie Thomas in 2017. After about a year and a half of the book’s publication, a film version will hit the silver screen. This story tackles the Black Lives Matter movement when the teenage character loses someone very close to her and fights her way to stand up for what’s right.
Following the story of Starr Carter, who is played by Amanda Stenberg who finds herself walking between the two neighborhoods; the poor, black neighborhood where she lives, and the rich mostly populated white school of which she attends. Balancing these two parts of her life were fine until it all comes crashing down when her friend, Khalil, played by Algee Smith is killed for disobeying instructions of staying still and reaching for a hairbrush.
